The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) has unveiled a new venue for motor vehicle owners who want inspection services but cannot access the Nairobi and Thika Inspection Centres due to travel restrictions.
On Thursday, April 4, the authority indicated that motorists who were locked out of the one-zoned area (Nairobi, Kiambu, Machakos, Nakuru, and Kajiado) will now be able to access the service within Murang’a County.
“NTSA will hold weekly (every Friday) Motor vehicle inspection at the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure Mechanical and Transport Division Yard, along Sagana-Murang’a road next to Huhi Fuel station, “the authority directed.
Drivers were advised to access the service by making a booking through the Transport Integrated Management System (TIMS) account and choosing any available date in the system.
The safety body advised those booking to select the Thika Inspection Centre as the location on the authority website.
Any motorist who has successfully been booked for an inspection can access the service from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Consequently, smart driving license services will continue to be offered at the Murang’a Huduma Centres every Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
“As we endeavor to offer the services, we call on our clients to adhere to the directives set to curb the spread of the Covid-19 virus,” the communications unit noted.
For more inquiries, clients should reach NTSA through [email protected], the free NTSA App, or Whatsapp this number; 07097556354 (strictly no calls).
The booking fee for a yearly inspection of a vehicle is Sh1, 750.
Booking for a vehicle inspection is valid for 14 days, and if the time lapse before the vehicle is presented for inspection, one will be forced to book afresh.
In the inspection hub, the inspectors check for the vehicle and driver information, car exterior and interior, chassis, tires, engine status, brakes, steering and suspension, safety light, wipers, belts, fluid levels hoses, windshield, and the exhaust pipe.
